    The Living Museum project


The Addison Road Community Centre is located in Marrickville, in the heart Sydney’s Inner West, on the land of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation.

The site – previously an Army Depot – is home to more than 20 community organisations and artists; galleries; a theatre; radio station; park; and organic gardens. The centre is cared for and managed by the Addison Road Community Centre Organisation (ARCCO). We provide affordable spaces for NGOs and community organisations, as well as spearheading community development programs in arts, culture, environment and social justice. From an important indigenous water source and hunting grounds, to a 19th century dairy and market garden, to a military transit depot from World War I to the Vietnam War, in 1976 the centre was created by community activists as a green space and dynamic location for multicultural, artistic and children’s activities. In 2015, the ARCCO launched a Living Museum project to highlight the history of the site and its ongoing evolution.

The self-guided Heritage Trail is available every day, but may be less readily accessible on Sundays, when the centre hosts the Marrickville Organic Food Market.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
